IV. Policies Regarding Fraternities, Sororities, and Independent Living Groups

Students who reside in or are members of a fraternity, sorority, or independent living group (FSILG) should be aware of policies that pertain specifically to them.  Recognized groups must comply with (1) all federal, state, and local laws and regulations; (2) all applicable MIT policies, including without limitation those set forth in MIT Policies and Procedures, the Mind and Hand Book, and the Residential Life and Dining Policies; (3) all rules and regulations of the relevant FSILG governing council and national or international organization; and (4) for residential facilities, all requirements of the city or town in which the facility is located, all of which are subject to change without notice.

The FSILG Office has policies that apply to organizations as well as individual members.  These policies, including MIT’s FSILG Relationship Statement and Recognition Policy and MIT’s Event Registration Policies and Protocols for Fraternities, Sororities, and Independent Living Groups are in addition to Institute-wide policies covered in the Mind and Hand Book and can be found online at: https://studentlife.mit.edu/fsilg/fsilg-office-policies

Violations of Institute policies or regulations by a MIT FSILG or their members may lead to disciplinary proceedings by the Committee on Discipline, the respective governing council for the FSILG, or both, and shall follow the options and general procedures outlined by the Committee on Discipline and the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards at MIT.
